    Payment code for Medicare in only 2 weeks?

    "Not only has Affymax successfully created the only once-monthly erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) for anemia available to the dialysis patient population, but it has also managed to get a special Medicare code for the drug which will streamline its distribution significantly."

    Medicare codes take much longer (affy rec'd theirs 2 weeks after fda approval). Why did this happen? Pretty amazing. Plus affy's code is a very special Medicare code that will allow omonty to hit the market with a pop plus save time and $$$.
